OPENING STATEMENTS

Why college football fans will forget about the transgressions of Ole Miss and Baylor the next time the two teams play August 2020 and what it means for college athletics

Exavier opens #SuitUP Podcast with a powerful opening argument on the state of college athletics based on the recent scandals appearing to rock the campuses of Ole Miss and Baylor and how they don’t really move the needle for most fans unless fans hold NCAA member institutions accountable.


DIRECT EXAMINATION

Washington Post Polling Manager explains polling methodology of controversial Post poll revealing 9 out of 10 Native Americans not being offended by Washington team name “Redskins”

Exavier  discusses with Scott Clement, Polling Manager for The Washington Post what steps the Post took to acquire data from the Native American community. Clement also explains why the Post’s poll is unrelated to Redskins owner Daniel Snyder  and NFL corporate interests, as is claimed in a statement in response to the poll by the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA).


FRESH ‘N’ CLEAN

Rapping deconstructed – Lyricism from A+ to YZ

Exavier talks with Vox.com web producer Estelle Caswell and hip hop lyricist expert Martin Connor on a video Vox.com created deconstructing the lyrics of some of the best rhymers in hip hop history. Kurtis Blow, Rakim, Notorious B.I.G., Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar were studied by the video. Exavier chops it up over which artists the video forgot and the discussion goes in depth on how hip hop lyricism can be studied along classical music.


CLOSING ARGUMENTS

Cincinnati Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in America. The death of gorilla Harambe brings into question of whether the Cincinnati Reds baseball organization should remain neutral or go through several events with the zoo on June 6th at the zoo or at the Great American Ballpark where the Reds play June 27th (Photo: Cincinnati Zoo)

Why the Cincinnati Reds should seriously consider postponing June events with the Cincinnati Zoo

Exavier explores the history of the purpose of zoos, connects zoo’s modern evolution to the death of an endangered gorilla at the zoo, and why that death brings into question the fallout for the Cincinnati Reds involvement with the zoo so soon after the tragic incident.
